    alyssa, i was debating the same thing (because the kodak coupon makes it worth it).

    i was thinking... i might get the mpix ones for family only and then do the kodak ones for everyone else.

    the only thing is that i personally am not crazy about most of the mpix templates, so im considering just doing kodak if i design one on mpix and dont care for the template... i wish there was a custom template so you could create your own on mpix.

    but for the value & quality, plus choices of templates, i like kodak best i think.

    sarah (or someone who got sarah's card last year), can you upload what it looked like (obv w/blacked out personal deets)?

      Wow Maura - you rock! We ordered from Shutterfly last year and were really happy with them.
      We just bought a new camera last week and have been playing around with MPix and will probably go that route this year. They have so many cool options there.

          here is some more info...so i just checked out Kodak - they have some nice templates but every card actually says KodakGallery.com on it i hate that!

          also for mpix -the prices in the spreadsheet are only for the flat cards and i agree Maura i don't really like those templates either. their folded cards are MUCH more expensive

          now what!?! lol

              yeah, you have to view the 'back' or 'inside' - i tried it with 3 different styles and it was there on everyone

              on the 4x8 card, i dont even have the option of viewing the back or inside

              the one i am talking about is a one sided flat front 4x8 card.

              if it's on the back, then i dont care. but if i was ordering a folded card, i sure wouldnt want it on the inside. i wonder if it actually prints that way or if that is a deterrent for copying stuff off their site & printing it elsewhere?

              i can call the 800 number later this afternoon to ask if you want

                To do your own design at MPIX you have to first upload your file to an album, then go to Specialty Products then Greeting Cards, and then select 4x8 full image.

                This is what my cards looked like. This is just the file I uploaded- they looked awesome in person on the metallic paper. They're $0.56 each with envelopes on MPIX.
